3:00 pm forecast change this afternoon. Latest NOAA, only a few minutes ago states:
THE LATEST MODEL SOLUTIONS DO INDICATE A COLD FRONT SLIDING THROUGH THE FORECAST AREA TOMORROW EVENING. THIS WILL RESULT IN A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS TOMORROW NIGHT AGAIN MAINLY FROM THE SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS SOUTH. THIS COLD FRONT WILL OPEN THE DOOR TO AN UNSETTLED WEATHER PATTERN FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.
AS AFORE MENTIONED UNSETTLED WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. THIS STATEMENT IS A RESULT OF THE MODEL SOLUTIONS INDICATING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIRTY RIDGE OVER THE EASTERN PACIFIC. THIS RIDGE PUTS CENTRAL CALIFORNIA UNDER SOMEWHAT MOIST NORTHWEST FLOW WITH SEVERAL EMBEDDED VORTICITY FEATURES PASSING OVER THE AREA. THIS SCENARIO WILL RESULT IN A CHANCE OF SHOWERS ALMOST THE ENTIRE WEEK.
7:30 am – all quiet this morning. Rainfall received last night 1.5 inches. In checking the raws, looks like Chalk Peak and Plaskett Ridge Top is where the rain hit hardest. Imagine that?
It is 12:45 am. The lightning and thunder have stopped, but the rain has not. When dawn comes, I will post my rain total for tonight, but frankly, I believe it will be well over an inch, and based on what I am hearing, it could be two inches. We will see how accurate I am.
